Assignment 2 - essay questions.
Assignment 2 is: An individual essay of 1500 words on a subject related to effective HRM in today’s organisations. The essay must be submitted by 3 p.m. on Friday 24th January 2014 (unless you have an agreed University time extension). The essay counts for 30% of the total module mark.
Please write a 1500 word essay on one of the following questions:
- Explain how planning is important for the successful management of people in organisations. Discuss its potential implications and benefits
The detailed Assessment criteria remain the same as they were for the first assignment (which you can view under Assignment 1). These criteria - for a 70% plus essay - can be summarised as:
* An excellent, coherent and logical structure with an excellent range of relevant issues
* A very high standard of writing in terms of grammar, syntax and clarity of the writing, and,
* Consistent and accurate Harvard referencing throughout and an excellent range of quality sources
Further points to note:
a) Please ensure all arguments are based on appropriate and well referenced sources
b) For this Assignment, the Similarity figure in Turnitin will be fully taken in to account when your essay is being marked. You need to ensure (by checking in advance using Turnitin) that your Similarity figure is not above 15%. You can reduce the Similarity by these two methods:
1) express the ideas and theories of acknowledged writers in your own words (you still, of course, have to Harvard reference the ideas/theories)
2) use fewer and shorter "word for word" quotes in your essay (which, again of course, have to be Harvard referenced).
